Five Minute Friday- Trust

 On Fridays around these parts (ok so it’s been a while…)we stop, drop, and write.

For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.

For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just writewithout worrying if it’s just right or not.

Won’t you join us?

Here are the rules:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in.

3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

Today’s prompt is:  Trust

Ready? GO!

“Cari, we just need to trust God.”

I just stared at the text on the screen. Black words in blue bubble. Simple. Quiet….Searing.

Big breath in and out and relief and calm sweep over me.

Oh, yeah…trust God. Why didn’t I think of that?

In the midst of a situation I was working so hard to “handle.” In the middle of my wheels spinning tight, all wrapped around the axle frenzy…one sister…one sentence….one truth….trust God.

Trust God that He knows what He’s doing.

Trust God that when He whispers He is rescuing a heart, even when…no, especially when…it doesn’t look like how you would do it, that He is indeed rescuing.

Trust God that when He needs your help, you will be the first to know.

Trust God that he’s got this…that he will heal this….that he will be victorious in this….
